Discover Global Markets Trading at Standard Bank
Welcome to our programme! We are so excited to have you here.
Here at Standard Bank, we’re passionate about driving sustainable, inclusive growth across Africa. The kind of growth that will make a positive and lasting impact on all our lives. And we put Africa’s dreams, our clients’ dreams, and our people’s dreams at the heart of everything we do.
During this programme, you will get the opportunity to step into the shoes of a Standard Bank team member and complete tasks that replicate the work that our Global Markets Trading team does every day. You’ll learn how to prepare a weekly market view, prepare for key economic and earnings events, analyse the impact of economic events on the investment landscape, and more.
We hope this programme provides a great resource for you to upskill and strengthen your resume as you explore career options and a potential career at Standard Bank!
